Two new TV spots for Iron Man 3 debuted during today’s Super Bowl, but now four new images from the Shane Black picture are available. While Robert Downey Jr. is hidden away behind various versions of his armor, we do get to see the Armored Avenger amidst his rescue of airplane passengers. We also get a clear shot of Don Cheadle tucked safely away within his Iron Patriot/War Machine armor.
Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale, Iron Man 3 opens internationally in IMAX 3D theaters starting April 25th with a wide domestic release on May 3. Hit the jump to see the new images and watch the two Super Bowl TV spots in case you missed them.
The family drama genre is one that’s very easy to get wrong, and it’s rare to find a film of this kind that is genuinely moving without feeling overly manipulative or sappy. Writer/director Drake Doremus took the Sundance Film Festival by storm in 2011 with his young love drama Like Crazy, and he returns in 2013 with an intimate take on the family drama genre that marks a major step forward for the filmmaker. In chronicling the story of a foreign exchange student who causes a deep and devastating rift in a close-knit upstate New York family, Doremus’ Breathe In completely wraps the viewer up in the emotions of its characters and doesn’t let go for 98 captivating, intense, and ultimately heartbreaking minutes.
Today, Sundance announced their stellar Premieres line-up and we have the first images from a few of the movies playing in the category:
- Big Sur – Written and directed by Michael Polish, starring Jean-Marc Barr, Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, Radha Mitchell, Anthony Edwards, and Henry Thomas.
- Breathe In – Written and directed by Drake Doremus, co-written by Ben York Jones, starring Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, and Mackenzie Davis.
- The East – Written and directed by Zal Batmanglij, co-written by Brit Marling, starring Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgård, Ellen Page, and Patricia Clarkson.
- jOBS – Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matt Whiteley, starring Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was a geek’s dream. Scott, who directed Alien in 1979, was one of the great science fiction filmmakers, but hadn’t done anything in the genre since 1982 – since Blade Runner. And though Alien spawned a franchise, Scott had never made his own sequel. Prometheus was sold as a semi-prequel, an “in universe” film that takes place before the events of the first film, but may not tie into them directly. After a series of great trailers, there was hope that the film (which was also rated R, rare for a huge summer movie) would be awesome, would be a great Scott film. Alas, it’s more of a mess. Our review of the Blu-ray of Prometheus follows after the jump.
China is already a huge market for American-made films, but looks to increase its purchasing power by expanding the number of American-Chinese co-productions in the coming year. Chief among them is the Marvel movie Iron Man 3, which is currently filming. However, a snafu occurred recently when questions were raised as to what exactly comprised a “co-production.” The two sides hashed it out at a joint film summit held at UCLA on Monday and things look prosperous for the future.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Sir Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Jon Favreau, Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 is slated to open May 3rd, 2013. Hit the jump for more on the American-Chinese co-production of Iron Man 3.
By now you’ve surely seen the first trailer for director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Sir Ben Kingsley. You might have even glanced at the collection of images we pulled from said trailer to get a closer look at the images hidden within. Now, we’re going to take those images and speculate as to what they might mean for the plot. What’s up with War Machine’s paint job? Why is Iron Man all up in people’s faces and being a sleep creep? Why does an over-sized bunny appear to have an arc-reactor? What’s the deal with the Mandarin’s rings? Marvel’s Kevin Feige has some insight to share on that last question. Hit the jump to see the answers.
Iron Man 3, also starring Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, opens in 3D on May 3rd, 2013.
The first trailer for Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 dropped earlier today, and it’s pretty great. The big take away is that this looks to be a surprisingly dark entry into the series, especially for the wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). But there are also some cool details in the trailer you may have missed. What’s with the tattoo on the back of the Mandarin’s neck? What happened to poor Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)? Who is Iron Patriot beating up on? There are also plenty of cool images that prove Black, even though he only directed one movie before this one (albeit an excellent one), knows how to shoot action.

The first trailer for director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 has been released and it’s looking a lot darker for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) this time around. Following the events of The Avengers, Stark is a bit more shaken up than one would have expected. His nightmares plague him with sleepless nights and constant fear that harm will befall the people he cares about. And it’s looking like his greatest technological achievement will become his biggest threat. At least until the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) makes his appearance in grand fashion (though I’m not 100% sold on his accent).

We were recently treated to an official synopsis for Marvel’s upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World that shed a light on the story of the godly follow-up, and now the studio has released a full synopsis for Iron Man 3. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously noted that the third entry in the Iron Man franchise would metaphorically get Tony Stark “back to the cave,” in a place where he’s stripped of everything and left with only his intelligence to fight his way back. This synopsis teases just that, as Stark finds himself on a sort of revenge mission after his “personal world is destroyed” by his enemy (Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin). The synopsis also promises an answer to a question that’s central to Stark’s character: does the suit make the man or does the man make the suit?

Quite the cast has been assembled for Return writer/director Liza Johnson’s indie dramedy, Hateship, Friendship, one that includes Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Guy Pearce (Prometheus) and Nick Nolte (Warrior).

Next month, Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus will hit Blu-ray, and it will contain a slew of special features including 15 minutes of deleted scenes. One of those scenes will let us listen to the Engineer’s voice. You may recall [spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie yet] that the Engineer stays silent when David speaks to him (click here for what David (Michael Fassbender) said). In the deleted scene, we hear that the Engineer speaks in a guttural voice, which fits the character’s size and build, but doesn’t feel too original. Prometheus has a lot of problems, but letting the Engineer stay silent and mysterious isn’t one of them.
An unused track from the film has also leaked online, and it was reportedly supposed to be used during the scene where Shaw (Noomi Rapace) ventures out into a storm to retrieve the decapitated head of an Engineer. I’m not sure if the music would have fit the scene (I only saw the movie once), but it would certainly fit a bevy of trailers for sci-fi action movies. Hit the jump to check out the deleted scene and the unused track. Prometheus hits Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on October 11th.
“It is not the violence that sets men apart,” Forrest Bondurant (Tom Hardy) tells his younger brother Jack (Shia LaBeouf) in John Hillcoat‘s Lawless. “It is the distance he is prepared to go.” The film presents two approaches to the gangster world: the imagined and the practical. Jack dreams of being a gangster without the violence. Forrest doesn’t need the gangster flash, but he is willing to take a pair of brass knuckles and punch out someone’s throat. Hillcoat and screenwriter Nick Cave take a curious look at how two men approach the violence that must be done in order to ensure their survival, and ask themselves what they’re surviving for. Is it for family? Is it for personal pride? Between Jack and Forrest, there’s a serious, meditative story. But beyond them lies distractions of half-developed romances and a cartoonish villain.
If you enjoyed the five clips from director John Hillcoat’s Lawless we posted earlier today, you’re going to love this new red-band trailer. It features good old-fashioned tar and feathering, blood-letting, shoot ‘em ups and even an imposing dust storm. That all fits right at home in the Depression-era drama that follows the bootlegging Bondurant family in their backlash against the law enforcement officials who are trying to taking a cut of the profits.
Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman, opens August 31st. Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.
Five clips from the period drama Lawless have been released. Directed by John Hillcoat, the film stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, and Jason Clarke as three brothers who became bootleggers in the South during Prohibition. I was able to see the pic at Comic-Con and it’s great. The violence is incredibly raw and brutal, but it’s grounded with real, engaging characters brought to life by stellar performances. Though there’s not a bad actor in the bunch, the standout is definitely Guy Pearce as a corrupt FBI agent who’s obsessed with bringing the Bondurant boys down. His character is as slimy as he is disturbing, and Pearce chews the scenery like no other.
Hit the jump to watch the clips. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Gary Oldman. Lawless opens on August 31st.
